Just put a deposit down for a pro. Going to expand this time rather than replace.
My Pro being delivered on Friday morning. For the first time I've taken a day off for a new pin arrival. Debating to have them bring the Stern glass upgrade with them.
Just got my game this morning. Washers on the posts, flipper post is tight, raptor gate is fine, no clear issues. They added a color instruction card I was surprised to see. Only have a handful of games in but there is so much I am impressed with. The combo skill shots for me were new and the combos just feel so smooth.
I did look at the top smaller posts on the slings those do not have washers and it looks like there is a little bit of a ripple there but doesn’t look like the art is coming up at all. I’m just gonna keep my eye on it and see if it gets worse. My success on the plunge is somewhere around 75% I think.
Can you check the smaller posts without the washers? It seems all of my smaller ones have it. I’m not too concerned unless it spreads or pulls up the paint and chips.
I'm still trying to get the third skill shot in the combo. I almost always nail the first, 50% on the second, never hit the third. I love how slow the ball goes down that right wireform, although it probably gives me too much time to think about it and miss it!
I'm just wondering what the certainty is that all of those will eventually crack? I didn't see any "pools" on my star posts, but you can see little ripples in around 6 posts on my machine. For the heck of it I looked at Munsters and that had them too. That's sitting at about 500 plays and none seem to be cracking. Close to 100 on my JP right now.
Finally had a breakthrough game at 350 million. Advanced to the compys paddock. I have never modded any of my machines but replacing that raptor will be my first.
Almost 200 games and have not seen the pooling get worse or crack. My Munsters has about 350 plays and pooling but no cracks or chipping.
11 days in and I finally hit the double super skill shot. Had the first 2 down but always choked on the watchtower shot.
A couple of those pics look exactly like mine. I check them when I turn it on to see if they are getting worse, but I’m not concerned that they all will supposedly chip eventually. My Munster ones have not chipped.
